The 2017 Lord’s Taverners ACT Degustation and Winemakers Dinner was an outstanding success.
About 80 people gathered at Royal Canberra Golf Club last Friday night to be entertained by Chief Winemaker, Geoff Merrill, of South Australian-based Geoff Merrill Wines. Guests were treated to a delicious seven-course degustation dinner with matched wine for each course.
Geoff, who is also the Chairman of the Lord’s Taverners’ South Australian branch, spoke about his history and experience in the wine industry, the challenges Australia’s wine industry has faced over the years and his ongoing passion for making fine wine.
As is the case with other Lord’s Taverners events, proceeds from the dinner – including a percentage of wine sales from the event – will go towards the Lord’s Taverners ACT, helping young and disadvantaged cricketers and other local athletes.
Thank you to all who took the time to attend.
